About Your KC DJ

Johnny the DJ Quest, affectionately known as Johnny, DJ Johnny Quest or DJ Quest, is Your KC DJ's premier DJ & Emcee.  Johnny is an Army veteran who fell in love with the concept of the disc jockey while stationed at Fort Bragg, NC.  Captured by the way good DJs have the ability to create phenomenal events, Johnny knew that he was born to spin on the "ones and twos."

 

After leaving the Army in 2003, Johnny set out to become a DJ and has been performing ever since.  Johnny's resume includes various Kansas City venues (both clubs and private).  Johnny has always had a passion for good music and has never limited his musical selections to one genre. He has carried this eclectic style into his career and has a reputation for being one of the most diverse DJ's and energetic Emcees in the Kansas City area.  If you are at a Johnny the DJ Quest set, you will be taken on a journey through various genres and decades of music. Johnny's musical taste is a direct result of the places he has lived: England, Wyoming, South Dakota, North Carolina, Washington D.C., South Carolina and Kansas City, MO.

 

 

 

*As of 2021, Your KC DJ, which was founded in 2011, partnered with Laura E Mason Foundation (LEM). By booking one of our DJ packages you are supporting our mission as a portion of your proceeds go exclusively to fund LEM's work.

 

Historically, clients book DJ services with us because they are looking for a DJ who can play to a diverse crowd (ages and cultures) & will customize service.

 

Per a majority of client feedback, our musical knowledge, Emcee skills and creativity of performance rank high. Clients also speak to our organizational skills, helpfulness during the planning process and most importantly the fact that their guests always have a great time. We understand that our approach may not be for everyone and we are okay with this.
